Phil Tayler dropped most of the members of Future Leaders of the World after getting dropped from Epic and got help from Evanescence guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray for help on a new project. While there’s no word on a new label or a new CD, Machina (pronounced Mu-SHEEN-a) has produced a few demos in the hopes of making a new CD. The band is said to draw influences from Soundgarden and Black Sabbath. Songs include Precious, The Verdict and 94 Seasons. Guitarist Jack Wiese is also serving as Rocky's drum tech on Evanescence's current tour.
